Roast Turkey Dinner in July
I bought a fresh turkey breast Thursday, presalted it and left in in the fridge tightly covered in plastic wrap. Friday morning I removed the plastic and left it in the fridge so it could air dry. Moe had the oven already preheated to 500°F for me when I got home from work. While the turkey was roasting (took less than an hour) I prepared the sides. Simple mashed potatoes with gravy, simmered green beans and a couple of Hakurei (little white turnips) from our garden. The only thing missing was the stuffing. I seriously debated making stuffing too but it was so hot here that I already thought I was crazy roasting anything.
If you are interested in trying either the presalting or the high heat method you can find the basic instructions here:
